California Health Data Exchange Opens Opportunities

As healthcare moves into the digital age, even rivals are showing they can be friends. The $80 million partnership between Blue Shield of California and WellPoint’s Anthem Blue Cross will combine nine million patient records to create one of the largest Health Information Exchanges (HIE) in the nation. Aside from clearing the way for faster and better care, at a lower cost, the non-profit partnership aims to kickstart new innovation. We can't wait to see what's ahead!

Creating Healthcare Connections

Learn how to build bridges between innovators, payors and providers at Connected HealthCare 2014!  The summit will take place on October 14-15 in San Diego and will feature interactive sessions about big data, the roadmap to interoperability, user-centric case studies and more! Register with our code 2620SUH to get $100 off tickets.
